Alfred Schnittke:Suite in the old style

I have long lamented the inability of modern composers to write a tune. A straightforward enough idea one would have thought; what after all is music devoid of melody?

Just discovered a lovely exception; Schnittke's Suite in the old style. Listen to it here. (Just let it keep it playing, the movements will follow in sequence).
